How can I prepare for my appointment?
Please arrive on time for your appointment with a clean face, free from makeup. I will cleanse your face as part of the application, so don't worry if this isn't possible.
Can I choose the colours and style of my makeup?
Of course! You’re welcome to bring along any ideas or photographs. I can advise on what will be best for you as an individual, whilst keeping the initial inspiration in mind.
If I have an allergy or sensitive skin, should I let you know about this?
At the start of your appointment I will ask you about your skin type, allergies and sensitivity. I will then use suitable products for your skin. However, if you have a number of allergies, or a relevant skin condition, it may not be safe to continue with the appointment and any monies will be returned to you.
Can I bring some of my own makeup?
Unfortunately I'm unable to use products other my own. I can't know how they'll work with my other products, and I am unable to guarantee the longevity or the finish. I have a wide selection of colours and tones, for all skin types, so I'm sure I'll have something suitable for you.
I'm not really a big 'makeup' person - are you able to cater for me?
Yes, 100% !!
When should I have my bridal trial?
As soon as you can. It's important to have the trial so that you can decide if I'm the Makeup Artist for you. All trials are 'no obligation'.
Where should trials take place?
Ideally at my home, however I can travel to wherever is convenient. Feedback from friends and family is welcome at the end of the session however, to ensure that I give you the best service possible, I do politely ask that your consultation and trial are uninterrupted.
How far in advance do you take bookings?
I am taking bookings up until December 2021. Once the deposit has been paid, the date and price are secure.
How should I prepare for a bridal trial?
I advise my clients to start a good skincare regime as soon as possible, if you do not follow a routine already. If you're unsure, I'm happy to advise on this for you and can provide some good tips and recommendations. I can also discuss this in detail during the trial.
* Please note; I am not a dermatologist or etheistician, so please see a professional if you would like more comprehensive advice.

Every bridal booking will be accompanied by Terms and Conditions, which you will need to read, sign and return to me.
